qaeda or its continued plotting against the united states and other countries. the preeminent security threat to the ad states remains al qaeda and its adherents. since september 11, the counter- terrorism effort has been aimed at preventing the counter terror -- the counter efforts of al qaeda on the homeland. al qaeda continues to edify operatives overseas and develop new methods overseas to attack us at home. affiliated movements have taken us beyond the core leadership in afghanistan and pakistan, including the middle east, and east africa, central asia, and southeast asia. although each group is unique, all aspire to advance al qaeda's agenda by stabilizing the companies in which they operate and attacking the u.s. and plotting to strike it u.s. homeland. in south asia, al qaeda continues to pose a threat from its base of operation in pakistan's tribal areas. in order to use that to carry a attacks against a homeland as well as our interests and those of our allies and partners in pakistan, afghanistan, india, and europe. the united states faces to counter terrorism charges -- a d
in the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria. we v a series of feisty debates on the hot topics of the day. we start with president obama's nomination of senator chuck hagel to be the next secretary of defense. we have a clash you will want to watch. >>> then the relationship between the united states and russia keeps getting worse, whose fault is it? moscow or washington? a debate. also, the next fight in washington will be over the debt ceiling. can president obama end this craziness and bypass congress altogether? we'll talk about the out of the box solutions and whether they would work. >>> and, finally, this is the signature of the man who might be the next treasury secretary. we'll look back through history to see if there's any loopy president. speaking of secretaries of the treasury three former holders of the office and many other statesmen and women offering advice to the president on a new gps special tonight "memo to the president, road map for a second term." tonight at 8:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. eastern and pacific. >>> first, here's my take. chuck hagel's nomination
, the eisenhower doctrine and the united states' desire to push back. libya was desperately pleading for u.s. attention back then, for aid to get itself together to be able to, you know, to stand on its own feet. this was before the discovery of oil. and the u.s. kind of took a, well, you know, you're really not as important as egypt, for example, and, you know, we'll think about it. and the result was that the prime minister at the time, you know, basically devised a plan to court the soviets and see if he could grab the united states' attention. and that happened. the next, you know, major event was the libya's and gadhafi's successful bid to change drastically the way that oil pricing was conducted by squeezing the independent oil companies -- occidental petroleum first and foremost -- into changing the system whereby there would be a 50/50 split and, basically, controlling interests by u.s. companies in libyan oil. and the consequence of that has come through to this day in terms of increasing the power of, the economic power of the gulf states, available b ya in particular. -- saudi a
with the denver office of greenberg trow erring. he was the united states attorney for the district of colorado from 2006 to 2009. he's a former member of the attorney general advisory committee of the narcotics and drug trafficking subcommittee of that committee. he's an adjunct professor at the university. and he is distinguished for public service with the drug enforcement administration, the federal bureau of investigation and the secret service. he's going to help us understand law enforcement options and how to balance this power equation to get it right. michael grava, next to mihm is a professor at george mason university school of law and a visiting scholar at the american enterprise institute. the co-founder and former director for individual rights which is a public interest law firm. perhaps most on point today he is in my view probably the country's single most creative and thinker with a book on that subject called "real federalism: why it matters, how it could happen" and a very important book on the same subject published last year called "the upside down constitution." and fina
people and the united states but of the entire region. and finally we reaffirmed the strategic partnership we signed last year in kabul, an enduring partnership between two sovereign nations. this includes deepening ties with trade, commerce, strengthening institutions, development, education, and opportunities for all afghans. men and women, boys and girls. and this sends a clear message to afghans and to the region as afghans stand up they will not stand alone. the united states and the world stands with them. now, let me close by saying that this continues to be a very difficult mission. our forces continue to serve and make tremendous sacrifices every day. the afghan people make significant sacrifices every day. afghan forces still need to grow stronger. we remain vigilant against insider attacks. lasting peace and security will require governance and development that delivers for the afghan people and an end to safe havengs for al qaeda and its ilk. all this will continue to be our work. but make no mistake. our path is clear and we are moving forward. every day more afgha
. looking at conflicts of the organization's and workspace united states, often not the most crucial to those on the ground and sometimes it is difficult to understand. those other questions that they ask. who can i trust? to can i not trust? sow developed a policy that is the question we have to ask what about the relationship of foreign fighters? what kind? overtime there is a pretty good relationship without chitin and i imagine they would point* to the relationship over time that they clashed repeatedly with millicent's and as a result he clashed with other taliban elements in south waziristan. stability of that organization we have to get down to the fine point* how he frames his politics. for. have aggressively do they target people in afghanistan? this is pretty obvious. he supported troops from afghanistan but that is not the case for every militant network fare pretty -- many criminal networks that fought other militant organizations. it is a key question for policy going forward have the pakistan restate looks at the organization's. it is important to us but not the i s i h
the limitations, it can matter in certain places. that is a realistic assessment. part of the role of the united states is to go into the interior to redesign and so there are less a threat to the united states. when you have limited power, it makes someone like chuck tickle very skeptical of the ability of the united states to do that -- chuck hagel very skeptical of the ability of united states to do that. when he traveled with president obama, a think this was part of this discussion. host: what relationship does carry schmidt and senator hagel have? guest: if you look of a first term of the obama administration, there were doubts about his foreign policy and. it was natural for him to pick then-senator clinton to be secretary of state. i think in a second term, he is not running for reelection. he is more inclined to pick somebody he is comfortable with. the gun along in the senate, so presumably they will get along in it administrations -- they got along in the senate, so presumably they will get along in the administration. i think the fundamental reason, senator hagel, he and the presiden
is quite arguably our foremost foreign policy issue and challenge facing us today. the united states has spends more money to rebuild afghanistan than it has spent on the reconstruction of any other single nation, including germany following world war ii. we spend about $28 million every day to rebuild and reconstruct afghanistan. nearly 90 plus billion we have already appropriated for afghanistan relief and reconstruction is designed to build and strengthen the afghan national security forces, promote self-government, and foster economic development. it is my job and the job of my nearly 200 auditors, investigators, inspectors, and other professional staff to make certain this money is spent wisely, effectively, efficiently, and protected from waste, fraud, and abuse. to help you understand the challenges we face and that my sister inspector general's face in their roles, as well as what our country faces in afghanistan, let me start by telling you a little story, a story about one of our inspections. in the far north of afghanistan, bordering tajikistan, kunduz province. it has seen an

to zero, but and forth. -- back and forth. it is not so much the economic constraint of the united states, or the political reality. it should be a combination of all three. first, a definition of the mission. what the united states wants to accomplish in afghanistan. if the mission is clearly defined, we can consider this will take so many troops. i know that definition is a counter-terrorism presence, not so much counterinsurgency, which could be carried out by afghans. the question is, who is the terrorist? it is the taliban included or not? i do not want to run over my time, but i can discuss this if there is more interest. >> i think we have a comprehensive picture. you mentioned for transitions. what would be the most helpful thing, in your perspective, for all or any of the particular transitions that outsiders could entertain? >> the most important role the international community generally could play is an economic transition. that makes the political transition possible, and the security transition sustainable. for this, what is needed is working more closely to reintegrate the
such as what kind of agreements will be signed between the united states and afghanistan are important and many others. let me turn to the three speakers each of, will speak between 6-10 minutes. we will open it up to questions and dialogue that. let me start with a gem. >> my responsibilities for afghanistan go back to 2001. i think it is fair to say, at least the current regime in kabul. i start by looking back and try to spot the things we did wrong at the time fundamental errors. i received at the time and tried to do something which the film to do entirely and did nothing about. >> one was a decision not to deploy any international peacekeepers and enter the country. no police force and no army and we decided security will be an afghan responsibility. i think that was a major mistake. the second was to allow the coalition that we built for the war and peace conference for the bond conference to disintegrate. peron had be helpful. at this don had be actively not unhelpful. we failed to keep up to the standard and to succeed in addition to the years. the third carriage that we've failed to p

the embargo. it is a great question u.s. a lot of confidence just as they had made the united states what it was between 17871960 that they could succeed and make this of a country, independent , a nation state, and that they could build a proper nation state in the 19th century sense of the word on the basis of cotton. they talked about this a lot. they compare themselves to other european countries in terms of population, national resources, the value of the trade. they were riding high. the confederacy's often look understood. we tend to look at it as a defensive move. it decided to take this gamble. they did take a gamble, but the only slave-holding class in the 19th century world to get it. slaveholders did not do. why did these guys? that is a really interesting question, and i try to explain, there was a mindset. completely fascinating to get inside the mind of this incredibly powerful, not just in terms of social power and wealth, but political power of this elite, and they were running the united states and did not doubt their ability to do this separately. confidence is there. b
come to the united states who had come out first to see the second lady and then had come to the united states to study. pat didn't limit her contact on her travels to important people. she treated everyone she met as though they were the most important person in the world. the people she met sensed her sincerity and responded to it. third, she was happiest in her role when she could take action. the party the nixons were at and the engagement they were going to were not as important at that moment as getting this visitor from india a seat at the presidential dinner. in the greater scheme of things, this is really a small act. but it left a lasting impression both on the woman involved, the indian woman involved, and on the women at the table that she was eventually seated at. that's how we actually know about the event, is through a letter that someone who she ended up sitting with responded and wrote to pat later about it. for pat politics was her job and one she didn't always enjoy. while on occasion she was proud of her work in helping to raise funds for the party, she found many of

's not quite true. the first fracks were done in the united states in the gas industry, i believe in missouri in 1947. if i remember correctly. and fracking, by the way, is used in the gas industry on a massive scale ever since. so suddenly we become aware of fracking. it's been going on before our eyes but many notice all along. the people who brought it back, hour, were the canadian who brought it to russia in 1988, then big time after the soviet union fell apart. and fracking started to be applied on a massive scale in starting in about 1998. now the point of the story is this, even though it was new to the russians, practicedically speaking in stwaight. it become a russian big -- they were doing fracking on a larger scale. it gives you one measure of the lag and the lag quickly overcome. at the opposite extreme, however, there are techniques that are completely out in russians and that require a whole different aura of capability because they are more difficult. and the prime example of arctic offshore. now there are two examples in the world of countries that have gone from zero to sixty
in the united states in the gas industry i believe in missouri in 1947 if i remember correctly. and fracking, by the way, has been used in the gas industry on a massive scale ever since. it's been going on beneath our notice all along. the people who brought it back, however, were the canadians who brought it to russia in 988 -- 1988. and fracking started to be applied on a massive scale starting in about 1998. now, the point of the story is this: even though it was new to the russians, practically speaking, in 1998, by 2000, 2001 it had become a russian business, and there were russian companies and russian crews who were doing fracking at the, you know, on a massive scale. so this gives you one measure. at the opposite extreme, however, are techniques that are completely new to the russians and that require a whole different order of capability because they are so much more difficult. and the prime example is offshore. there are two examples in the world of countries that have gone 0-60 in developing arctic offshore. norway and now brazil. those two are really the touchstones. they are the
the united states. we have achieved that goal. we are in the process of achieving that goal. >> he said we're in the process of achieving that goal. is he right about that and is it sustainable after 2014? >> the short answer is no. what we started in afghanistan after 9/11 was a warranted war of necessity. we expanded it over the years, particularly under president obama in 2009 when we tripled our forces and we decided to go after the taliban, essentially join afghanistan's civil war and nation build. the idea that we're going to be able to leave behind a self-sustaining capable afghanistan able to for a government to keep control of its territory, we're not going to be able to do it. it was a mistake to try. we won't achieve that result. essentially what we'll fall back to is what we could have years ago, a limited mission with trainers and advisers on the ground and when we have to, we'll send in special forces or drones to deal with if there are, for example, remnants of al qaeda who move back into the country. >> the president that wants to run the pentagon, chuck hagel, former senat
is a friend and ally of the united states. i was with nixon. he rescued israel even though they weren't a formal ally. people believe that but they disagree on the agenda of netanyahu. >> sought doesn't mean we are unaqifly allied with or support the programs of netanyahu. >> that's been true of every israeli prime minister. not every policy of every prime minister was supported by the united states. that's where the prime minister of israel better make sure that he knows where the united states is coming from, and i suspect that this president is not going to abandon israel. >> we've got to get -- >> clarify what i said. the president and the obama administration does not want to use forcing a gains iran. but that option is e two. gun control. national and state. >> there is nothing that has pricked the consciousness of the american people, there's nothing that has gone to the heart of the matter more than the visual image people have of little six-year-old kids riddled -- not shot with a stray bullet, riddled, riddled, with bullet holes in their classroom. and the public demands we
withdrawal, in which she called for the united states to remove all of its troops immediately. that was an extremely radical position, even into the early 70's. but howard argued it privately. to my mind it is one of the two or three best of his books. certainly it was a clarion call because nobody else and are you case so brilliantly. >> one of the more controversial episodes is a trip that howard made to north vietnam along with dan, very fans peace activist. he talked a little bit about how that came together and what happened? >> it was the result of another very well known peace activist at the time. call howard and said that fit the north vietnamese leaders had alerted he in the league in that they were willing to release three american pilots who had been captured but wanted to release them into the hands of peace initiatives, and not enter prison this from the u.s. hear the. and so hard was asked to go with them very in tune errors said, when. he said, tomorrow morning. he left the next morning. there was a little bit of conflict over how the pows were being released i
>> it's about 50 minutes. >> okay, good morning, everybody. my name is maria, and i am the united states register of copyrights and the director of the u.s. copyright office, and i'd like to say at the outstart that for me this is a very wonderful privilege because, as you may or may not know because of the long history of copyright law in the library of congress, this jefferson building is quite literally the house that copyright built. and with that, let me start by just introducing briefly the distinguished panel that we have. their bios in depth, of course, are in the program and online. but to my immediate left is tom allen who is a former congressman from maine and is presently the president and the chief executive officer of the association of american publishers. to his left is james shapiro who is a professor of english and a shakespearean scholar and author and vice president of the authors' guild. he's a professor at columbia university. thank you for coming down from new york, jim. and did you also come down from new york? >> this week i was here. >> this week you were
the world. for example the government of the united kingdom which spent about a decade financing and promoting what it saw as non-violent islamist extremist groups under the theory that only they could talk and dissuade the violent extremists only to conclude in the end, about the end of the blair player period, that the shared worldview was disastrous and that obviously they should be backing anti-extremist individuals and arguments. the chamber story, as has been said, is not only sort of the loss of faith, but if the acceptance of faith, christianity. in the current islamist case, the analogy is not perfect. but there is an analogy. chambers was born into a faith and culture of christianity in and around new york. in his first decade of the 20th century. he did not in the end adopt some foreign religion. he adopted his own religion, that of his ancestors. similarly, we don't have to seek to have islamist convert to what is to them a foreign religion, but rather an islam of their own ancestors, one and poisoned by the extremism we associate with wahhabism and al qaeda. the prob
% earners in the united states, not the 50% who don't pay any taxes, by the way. but top 20% we look at and measure for discretionary spending because that's the margin, the spending and certainly, gary is right that we will have a reduction, but look it, we've made it out of the depression and we made it out of the 1980's, we didn't cut payroll tax, we didn't come up with some deal. i say man up a little bit here. we've made it, this was temporary, everybody knew it was temporary and the higher income pple are staying at a spending level that will keep us going. >> brenda: and walker, people have less. they spend less. so, businesses make less. is that going to hurt hiring? >> i think it's going to hurt jobs, brenda. i think when you're talking about, this is really a bait and switch on the middle class in terms of what their expectations were from a policy standpoint, with the changes that were made in this, in, to the payroll tax holiday and that they're actually payingn extra 2% matters when you're making 30 to 50 grand. and it's disposable income they can't spend to go to the mo
of the public debt of the united states, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned." that is part of what this debate is all about. let's go to teresa, joining us from north las vegas nevada. the democrat line. caller: good morning. i wanted to call in support of the president and democrats. i am a progressive and in independent thinker. i do not think you should use the 14th amendment, unless it comes to a really economic crash. i am for raising the debt ceiling. i believe that we need to pay our bills. i have to pay my bills. if i do not pay my credit card bills, my credit rating goes down. my credit score goes down. and i pay more in interest in the future. i think it is very irresponsible of these tea party republicans to hold the country hostage. there are other issues that can be negotiated for spending and raising revenues and the debt ceiling should not be a part of it. host: ok, thank you for calling. here is the editorial cartoonist of the post. the idea of minting
to improve theirs life. so seven years ago we really have a feeling that in the united states, we really need to increase our hope also. and we decided to do that by creating a global art project, the world, tree of hope. and what you see behind you is a live, 23-foot christmas tree and it is covered with 10,000 pieces of oragami and most of it is white cranes and all of the white cranes on the tree are inscribed with people's wish and hopes for the world. merilee put out an invitation that goes out virally through the internet and we ask people what they want for the future of the world and share it with us. and wishes are send in all over north america and europe and africa and really we have got wishes coming in from almost every country in the world now. and people are just expressing, all kinds of amazing hopes and dreams for the future of the world which is really encouraging for us. we create the tree as a symbol of the global unity and hope. and we are going to continue to add wishes to the tree all through the month of december. so we would love for you to go to our website which is
't go over it on your credit card. and the united states government can't spend more than what its credit limit is or its debt limit. now ali velshi at cnn says that has no relation to spending. >> that's right, rush, the debt ceiling was create sod the congress wouldn't constantly need to authorize congress to borrow to raise more money. it doesn't authorize any new spending it authorizes payment. it does not increase deficits. it allows the treasury to pay for the things that the u.s. government has already bought. if the congress doesn't raise the debt ceiling. treasury won't be able to pay the bills and the u.s. government will start defaulting on some of its obligations. here's what happens on february 15th of this year. the federal government will take in an estimated $9 billion in revenue. that's the good news. but compare that to the $52 billion in bills that will need to pay, everything from interest on the debt to pay for members of the military, the bipartisan policy center. estimates that roughly 40% of the bills for the month would go unpaid. now what's the consequence
're in the top 10% of income in the united states. that means housing is no longer accessible to the middle class. and when the middle class can't buy housing, the middle class as we have known it since 1950 ceases to exist. so that's part two of the book. i've got programs that don't work, programs that do work. and then the intellectual challenge which really took the longest period to get my head around was, okay, if you know that these programs don't work and you've got a good fix on why and you know these programs do work and you have a good fix on why, are you capable of developing a social program or a blueprint for a program that would work? and that turned out to be quite tricky. you would like to help children. you would like to deal with social disadvantage of children. and the road block turns out that it is simply not in the political cards whether you're on the left or center, right of center or right on the center. our government is not about to help children by directing significant social resources to their parents. so one of the reasons most of our social programs fail is we giv
also own it and i am losing money on it. the whole cotton end of europe is going bank rument. united therapeutics. >> what are they. >> pills for people who don't take care of themselves. >> it is a volatile and it es up and down faster than evil knevil on a motorcycle. it has a good balance with 10 percent and i like that. >> i like of the reference of evil knevil. thanks for watching. number one bsi block continues with cheryl casoney and cashin. >> bosses be wear. employees may get the green light to bash there arecompany on social media sights. the same law protects them and workers the workers and take on colleagues on twitter. some say it is about boosting big labor. are they right? i am cheryl casewn and welcome to cashin in . joining us this week marjorie christon and welcome to all of you. johnathon i will start with you. is this about protecting the workers or padding union numbers? >> it is shocking, cheryl. it is union-led government force that is tremendoly destructive to businesses. i mean, whose company is it anyway? the owners or the governments? of course, it is the
, of what is the overall objective of the united states presence in afghanistan in the years ahead, whether or not the afghan military is capable of achieving those objectives. and i think because it's unclear and it has remained uncleared for so many years, the fundamental answer to that remains very ambiguous. >> so the accelerated withdrawal that ber talking about, does this mean that things are better on the ground in afghanistan, it's at a time when we can pull out our troops without leaving them decimated, or is this all about the u.s. just wants to get out? >> well, i think there's no doubt there's war fatigue in the united states. there's no doubt this war has dragged out from the eyes of many people for far too long, has cost far too many lives -- >> 11 years. >> 11 years. more than 2,000 soldiers killed. billions of dollars spent. and the question is is the united states particularly safer, is afghanistan safer. the short answer to that is yes, to some extent there are. but has the quality of life for afghan people gotten better? and many people make the argument it hasn't. even p
says the united nations look in that 21st century that has contributed to the conservation of political power in the hands of the green lobby? >> well, un has always been very encouraging of the green lobby, and this green jobs issue is not just an issue here in the that states but the issue also in europe, being encouraged by the u.n., meetings in real over the summer, but europe is also finding that green jobs are not all they thought there would be. spain has just stopped its subsidies for solar power and if it does not work in sunny spain it probably will work anywhere. germany has also stopped the subsidies for solar power which is a little more understandable because there are a lot more clouds in germany, even though the economy is that cloudy and all. the u.n. has had a very strong influence on the u.s. crashes, sir. >> you are probably not all the natural member, but jimmy carter did -- give lots of money, billions of dollars to alternate energy projects. >> i do remember. >> any of those plans still exist? i don't think it lasted more than a couple of years. secondly, are you
